Get up close and personal with Australian wildlife on Magnetic Island in Queensland with this 3 day/2 night package. Travel by ferry from Townsville to one of Queensland's best kept secrets, where coral reefs fringe secluded beaches and wildlife is abundant.
Magnetic Island YHA has its very own wildlife sanctuary, where you can cuddle a koala, hold a blue tongue lizard and learn about Australia's native animals on your guided tour. There's even champagne breakfast with the animals on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays (optional extra).
Spend the day snorkelling the coral reefs, relax at Horseshoe Bay Beach, feed the local rock wallabies, or explore one of the many walking tracks in the island's National Parks.
Please note: You can catch the local bus from the ferry terminal directly to the hostel. The bus costs approximately $3 and is payable direct to the driver.
